Getting whiplash is an unfortunate situation, but it could entitle you to compensation if you were injured due to someone else’s negligence. Although most whiplash injuries are caused by a rear-end vehicle accident, you can also suffer whiplash symptoms from other types of accidents.
A whiplash incident may entitle you to a workers’ compensation claim, a personal injury claim, or even both. In each of these circumstances, you need to be prepared to consult with an attorney who has walked through the situation before and understands the ways in which your life has been changed by a whiplash injury. The incident at work might have been so severe that you do not even realize how it exactly happened, making it all the more important to work with a legal team that can investigate the cause of the accident and can recommend the next best steps going forward.
If you sustained a whiplash injury at work, you firstly need to get medical attention immediately. This may also be the only way for you to recover compensation for your injuries. After tending to your injuries, your next step should be to speak with an experienced lawyer. You can contact Morgan & Morgan for a free, no-obligation case evaluation to get started.
